Firefighters Receive Oxygen Masks for Pets from Rescue Organization

March 27th, 2010

In the event of a house fire or other emergency, pets may need the same care and equipment that their owners receive to survive. An oxygen mask specially designed for pets that comes in three sizes can help save your best friend.

Shore Hearts Golden Retriever Rescue has donated three sets of pet oxygen masks to the firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics of the Jacksonville Volunteer Fire Company in Phoenix, MD. Marie Sciscione and Pat DeGuilmi along with their two Golden Retriever therapy dogs, Rayne and Stelllla did the honors and were joined by members of the fire company and their pets who received the masks Saturday morning. Also present was JVFCs brand new fire engine, a 2010 Pierce Arrow XT, delivered in the past few weeks with a final cost just over half a million dollars.
